The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 531
Elaine Ma did not know that both Christopher and Hannah had already begun plotting to rob her of her assets and the luxurious villa at Thompson First that was owned by her son-in-law, Charlie Wade.
She continued playing mahjong at Summer’s villa with her friends until late at night, not even bothering to go home for dinner. The four ladies decided to order some KFC takeaways instead.
They held onto the bucket of chicken as they enjoyed their chicken drumsticks and mahjong game. They could not stop smiling as they continued touching the mahjong tiles.
Charlie Wade was already done preparing dinner and was enjoying a meal with his wife and father-in-law at this time. Claire Wilson Wilson could not help but complain when she saw that her mother was not home at all.
After that, Claire Wilson Wilson said, “Dad! Can you please start to control mom occasionally? You should try to stop her from playing mahjong and gambling all the time!”
“Control her?” Jacob Wilson snorted before he said, “I do not have the ability to do that. Why don’t you try and control her instead? If I can actually control your mother, do you think I would be in this state today? Do you know the reason why your grandmother had always favored and doted on her uncle instead of me?”
Claire Wilson Wilson was very surprised as she asked her father, “It cannot possibly be because of mother, right?”
“It is precisely because of her!” Jacob Wilson replied as he sighed. “In the beginning, your grandfather and grandmother did not allow me to get married to your mother. If your mother had not been pregnant with you, your grandfather would never have given in and compromised in the end.”
Charlie Wade was very surprised when he heard his father-in-law’s words. He never expected his mother-in-law and the old man to actually have a baby before marriage!
At this time, Jacob Wilson continued telling Claire Wilson Wilson, “Actually, your grandmother has never liked your mother. This fact has not changed at all even after more than twenty years.”
“Why?” Claire Wilson Wilson was very puzzled at this time. “Even if she has any dissatisfactions against my mother, shouldn’t she already let go of all her prejudices after more than twenty years?”
Jacob Wilson replied, “Your grandmother thinks that your mother is shrewd and looks down on your mother’s family because they are relatively poorer.”
Claire Wilson Wilson could not help but sigh at this time. After that, she said, “I know that it is not right of me to say this, but I feel that my grandmother is not any better compared to my mother…”
“You are right.” Jacob Wilson nodded before he said, “I think that the main reason why your grandmother dislikes your mother so much is because she feels that she is remarkably too similar to herself…”
Claire Wilson Wilson rubbed her forehead gently before she muttered, “I think that what you said certainly makes sense…”
Charlie Wade did not say anything but he could not help but agree with Jacob Wilson’s words in his heart.
Lady Wilson was the big devil, and Elaine Ma was the little devil. When the big devil grew older, she was afraid when she saw the little devil. She was afraid that as she grew older, the little devil would slowly become the big devil and then start oppressing her instead.
So, that was the fundamental reason why Lady Wilson had always tried to keep Elaine Ma under her control.
In fact, the relationship between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law in this country was very delicate. However, in the final analysis, everything pointed to nothing more than one main point: A mother-in-law would always want to have absolute control over her daughter-in-law, and a daughter-in-law would always want to be free of her mother-in-law’s control.
This was especially so for a woman like Lady Wilson, who had a strong desire to control and manipulate the people around her. Not many people could actually stand or tolerate her.
At this time, the television that has been playing in the background suddenly showed a piece of news happening in Aurouss Hilll.
The reporter said, “The following is a piece of emergency news. A few days ago, Masao Kobayashi, the chairman of Kobayashi Pharma, died in a freak accident in Tokyo. According to the Japanese media, the cause of Masao Kobayashi’s death was because he was poisoned by his eldest son, Ichiro Kobayashi. News reports showed that Masao Kobayashi took a drug with a strong excitatory effect which caused the heart to become overloaded, and he died of a sudden heart attack.”
The reporter continued speaking, “Interpol has received news that Ichiro Kobayashi is currently hiding and seeking refuge in Aurouss Hilll. The Kobayashi family is offering a reward of three billion yen to anyone who can hunt Ichiro Kobayashi down. Therefore, a large number of Japanese hitmen and gang members have entered Aurouss Hilll to hunt this man down.
The police are also actively hunting the killers down in Aurouss Hilll. The police are requesting everyone to remain vigilant, and the citizens are advised to call the police immediately if you see any suspicious people!”
As soon as Jacob Wilson heard the news, he smacked his lips together as he said, “This Ichiro Kobayashi is truly a beast! How could he kill his own father just because he wanted to inherit his family property?”
Charlie Wade could not help but chuckle when he heard his father-in-law’s words.
Ichiro Kobayashi was not a beast, he was just being seriously wronged.
He was actually a filial son who genuinely wanted to cure his father’s high paraplegia.
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 532
However, it was a pity that he did it the wrong way. That was the reason why this filial son was now regarded as a beast by everyone.
After two whole days of fermentation, the death of Masao Kobayashi, the chairman of Kobayashi Pharma, had aroused a great deal of attention in Japan.
Under the vigorous propaganda launched by Masao’s second son, Jiro, Ichiro suddenly became the chief culprit who had poisoned his own biological father to death in an attempt to take over his father’s role as the chairman of Kobayashi Pharma.
At this time, the whole of Japan was scolding Ichiro, for they thought that he was actually the most unfilial son in Japan. People even nicknamed him the shame of Japan!
At the same time, Jiro also increased the cash reward for his brother, Ichiro’s head from 1 billion yen to 3 billion yen.
He wanted to take over the position of the chairman of Kobayashi Pharma as soon as possible. Therefore, he had no choice but to make sure that his brother died quickly, and he should never be allowed to return to Japan before he died.
Jiro knew very well that his elder brother had never intended to kill their father. Even if he had wanted to, he would not have attempted to kill his father while he was still stuck abroad. If he was in Japan, he could take over the role of the chairman of Kobayashi Pharma as soon as this tragedy happened.
Therefore, Jiro could only assume that his brother was also a victim of this incident, and he was also suffering at this time.
After all, Kobayashi Pharma has already transferred ten billion dollars to Charlie Wade, and this was more than enough proof that Charlie Wade was actually the one behind this whole incident.
However, if he did not push the blame onto his elder brother, then, as the eldest son, Ichiro would become the rightful heir to the throne. He would become the rightful chairman of Kobayashi Pharma.
If the second son wanted to counter-attack and secure the position for himself, he would have no choice but to continue oppressing his brother.
Because of this, Jiro could not wait for his brother to die in Aurouss Hilll.
If Ichiro was not given a chance to speak, his position as the chairman of Kobayashi Pharma would be even more stable and secure.
From his continuous increase in the cash reward and bounty for his brother’s head, it was obvious that Jiro was very eager to kill Ichiro as soon as possible.
Therefore, Charlie Wade sent a text message to Albert, asking him to contact Jiro. Charlie Wade asked Albert to demand one billion dollars from Jiro in exchange for Ichiro. Otherwise, Charlie Wade would personally escort Ichiro back to Tokyo and help him to hold a press conference so that he could clarify the matter in person. If that happened, Ichiro would be able to openly compete with Jiro to become the successor of Kobayashi Pharma.
In truth, Charlie Wade’s thinking was very simple. If Jiro truly wanted to become the chairman of Kobayashi Pharma, he would have to cooperate with him. Otherwise, if Charlie Wade released Ichiro, the brothers would have to share Kobayashi Pharma, and Jiro’s loss would be far greater than just one billion dollars.
Albert did not say anything and immediately got in touch with Jiro, relaying Charlie Wade’s request to him.
Jiro almost went crazy after listening to Albert’s words.
One billion dollars?!
Kobayashi Pharma has already given Charlie Wade ten billion dollars for the prescription of the poison!
The ten billion dollars incident was voluntary, and his father had been completely fooled by the other party.
It was d*mn frustrating for Jiro to even think about it. After all, his father had actually spent ten billion dollars to buy a poison that had eventually taken his very own life.
If this transaction were to be exposed to the public, this would really be the most unjust transaction of the century.
Jiro felt that if Charlie Wade was humane, he would actually help him kill his brother in exchange for the ten billion dollars. However, he never expected this guy to open his mouth and ask him for another one billion dollars instead. Did he really think that he owned a bank?!
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 533
Jiro really hated Charlie Wade to the core.
However, he did not dare to offend Charlie Wade.
Therefore, he could only try to bargain with Albert.
His tone was also very pious. “Don Albertt, could you please convey my message to Mr. Wade? There are only about two or three billion dollars left in Kobayashi Pharma’s bank account, and many of our debtors have not paid us back. We also owe the bank several billion dollars in loan now. We are really under a great deal of pressure!
Albert replied, “Mr. Wade has always meant what he says. So, don’t think that you can bargain with Mr. Wade as and when you please!”
Jiro begged, “Don Albertt, I’m really having a hard time now. Why don’t we do this instead? Tell Mr. Wade to give me two months. I will definitely transfer the money over to him in two months. However, during these two months, he must make sure that my brother does not say anything or show his face in public, let alone return to Japan under any circumstances at all!
“Two months?” Albert thought for a moment before he said, “Wait a moment. I will ask for Mr. Wade’s opinion.”
After that, Albert immediately sent a text message to Charlie Wade and told him all about Jiro’s request to transfer him the money in two months.
Charlie Wade was cleaning up the dining table at this time, and when he saw Albert’s message, he did not hesitate to send a reply immediately.
[Tell him not to try and bargain with me anymore. If he tries to bargain with me again, I will talk to his brother, and I will send his brother back to Japan to fight for the inheritance with him. Tell him that his brother would agree to my request even if I asked him for five billion yen!]
Ichiro was hiding at Albert’s dog farm at this time. He knew that countless people wanted to kill him, and so, he was in a panicked and anxious state all day.
In his opinion, he would die in the blink of an eye, so, if Charlie Wade really gave him a chance to return to Japan and fight for his inheritance, he would even be willing to give Charlie Wade more than eighty percent of any inheritance that he received without any hesitation at all.
Albert called Jiro once again as soon as he received Charlie Wade’s reply. “Mr. Kobayashi, you are trying so hard to bargain with Mr. Wade for just one billion yen, but have you ever thought about it in depth?
If Mr. Wade decides to talk to your brother and send him back to Japan to fight for the inheritance with you, Ichiro might agree to pay Mr. Wade two or three billion yen immediately as remuneration! When that time comes, you will not only be losing just one billion yen! As far as I know, Kobayashi Pharma is a pharmaceutical company with a market value of tens of billions of dollars!”
When Jiro heard Albert’s words, he gritted his teeth and replied without any hesitation at all, “Don Albertt, please tell Mr. Wade that I agree to his request! I will go and raise the money right now!”
In fact, even though Kobayashi Pharma did not have much money left in their bank account, Jiro’s father, Masao, had a lot of money deposited into his personal bank account.
The money was supposed to be shared between the two brothers after their father passed away. However, if Ichiro died, Kobayashi Pharma, as well as all the cash deposits, antiques, and real estate left behind by his father, would all belong to him alone.
Jiro did not want to delay anything further. Thus, he quickly transferred the money over to Charlie Wade after a mere ten minutes. After that, he called Albert and said, “Don Albertt, the money has already been transferred to Mr. Wade’s bank account.
Please ask him to check if he has already received the money. By the way, please ask him to send my brother on his way as soon as possible after confirming that he has already received the money. I hope that he dies as soon as possible!”
Albert promised, “Don’t worry, Mr. Wade has always been a very credible person. As long as he has already received your money, he will definitely make sure that your brother will completely evaporate from this world.”
After he hung up the phone, Albert immediately sent a text message to Charlie Wade, “Mr. Wade, have you received the money from Jiro?”
Charlie Wade replied, “Yes, I have received it.”
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 534
Albert hurriedly asked, “So, do you want me to kill and get rid of Ichiro now? Should I take a video of the killing for Jiro to see?”
Charlie Wade replied, “I want you to hide Ichiro somewhere and then find someone who can make special video effects. I want you to film a headshot of Ichiro and send that video to Jiro after having that person use some special effects to make sure that Jiro will believe that his brother is already dead.”
Albert asked in surprise, “Mr. Wade, are you trying to save Ichiro’s life?”
Charlie Wade replied, “Yes. I think keeping Ichiro alive will be of great use to us one day. Perhaps I can even use Ichiro to get my hands on Kobayashi Pharma in the future. I will be going too easy on Jiro if I killed Ichiro for him, just for one billion yen.”
After that, Charlie Wade spoke again, “Also, you should not think too much about morals or your credibility when it comes to this matter. After all, we don’t owe the Japanese anything at all. On the contrary, the more miserable they are, the better it would be for us!”
“I understand!” Albert hurriedly replied, “Don’t worry, Mr. Wade. I will arrange for more manpower to protect Ichiro from now on!”
At this time at the Moore family mansion.
The members of the Moore family were all seated around the dining table as they discussed the matter relating to Kobayashi Pharma.
As soon as Lord Mooore heard the news about Kobayashi Pharma, he said, “I have a feeling that this Kobayashi Pharma incident has something to do with Mr. Wade.”
Jasmine, who had just picked up a piece of broccoli suddenly put the broccoli down without eating or speaking at all.
At this time, her cousin, Reuben, also spoke up and said, “Grandpa, I feel the same way too. I heard that Masao Kobayashi of Kobayashi Pharma took a special pill to cure his high paraplegia first before he died of a sudden heart attack.
I also heard that Ichiro Kobayashi had asked the genius doctor, Dr. Simmons, for the prescription to cure high paraplegia at the Chinese Medicine Expo. I speculate that the medicine used by Dr. Simmons to cure high paraplegia is the same magical pill that Charlie Wade gave to you.”
Lord Mooore spoke up immediately, “Reuben! Mr. Wade’s name is not something you can call out so casually!”
Reuben hurriedly changed his words, “Sorry, grandpa. I did not think before I spoke. I think that the medicine used by Dr. Simmons should be the same magical pill that Mr. Wade has given to you.”
When he saw that Reuben was sincere when he changed his sentence, Lord Mooore nodded in approval before he said, “I think so too. Dr. Simmons’ medical skills are indeed very amazing, but he has not reached the miraculous stage where he would be able to bring a person back to life or turn his life around. Mr. Wade’s magical pill is the only medicine in this entire country that could possibly have this effect on anyone.”
With that, Lord Mooore could not help but sigh as he said, “The medicine given by Mr. Wade the last time was indeed very effective. I was a dying man, but after taking the medicine, I can feel that my body is already much stronger than before. However, it might be because I was too ill before this, but even though my life is no longer in danger, I somehow feel that my body is still languid. It must be because of my old age…”
Reuben hurriedly responded, “Grandpa, why don’t I look for Mr. Wade and ask him for another magical pill? I can also offer to buy it from him! If you take another magical pill, I believe that you will definitely feel much better, and you will also feel physically stronger!”
Lord Mooore hurriedly waved his hand before he said, “No, no! Mr. Wade has already given us the magical pill once. We have not even repaid his kindness yet. If we show up just to ask him for another pill, it will look like we are insatiable. We should know our own place!”
The Amazing Son in Law Chapter 535
Reuben truly could not understand why his grandfather respected Charlie Wade so much.
Lord Mooore regarded Charlie Wade as God. His reason was similar to Anthony’s reason for respecting Charlie Wade so much. Both of them were already old men in their twilight years. The more they knew about their upcoming destiny, the more they were afraid of it.
However, Reuben was not even thirty years old yet, and if anyone told him that he would be able to live for another five years after taking the magical pill, he would easily dismiss it. On the contrary, for an old man in his twilight years, someone telling him that he would be able to live for another five years was a miracle that was truly comparable to God’s hand.
Jasmine could more or less understand her grandpa’s psychological thoughts. After all, unlike Reuben, she also owned one of the magical pills given by Charlie Wade. She had been hiding the magical pill in her car, and the only people who knew about the magical medicine was just Charlie Wade and herself.
With this magical pill, Jasmine had an unprecedented peace of mind because she knew that even if anything untoward happened to her, she would have a chance to survive and come back against the wind as long as the medicine was in her hands.
If other people had an opportunity like this, they would not think that it was a great deal at all. This was because they felt that they would not be able to gain anything from this magical pill whatsoever.
Reuben was like that.
He knew that Charlie Wade’s magical pill was very precious. However, if he could get his hands on one, he would definitely give it to the old man so that he could use this opportunity to make the old man feel even more pleased and satisfied with him. That way, he would be able to secure and inherit more from the old man in the future. He would not have secretly kept the medicine for himself as Jasmine had.
This was not to say that Jasmine was not filial to her grandfather. Rather, she felt that this medicine represented Charlie Wade’s concern toward her.
Charlie Wade absolutely wanted her to keep this medicine for herself. Therefore, Jasmine felt as though she did not want to disappoint Charlie Wade’s hope for herself. She did not want to use the gift that Charlie Wade had given her to win over her grandfather’s acknowledgment and appreciation.
At the same time, Lord Mooore suddenly remembered something, and he blurted out, “By the way, Reuben, Jasmine, there is something I want the both of you to do for me after dinner. I want you to make a trip to the Castle Peak Psychiatric Hospital together.”
“The Castle Peak Psychiatric Hospital?” Reuben asked in surprise. “Grandpa, why do you want us to go there? What is going on?”
Lord Mooore replied, “I heard that something happened to the younger generation of the Webb family from Sudbury. That is why all of them have already rushed over to Aurouss Hilll to visit him.”
After that, the old man continued speaking, “I want you to greet Donald, the eldest son of the Webb family. He is about the same age as your father, but since your father is not in Aurouss Hilll right now, it would be inappropriate for an elder like me to personally make a trip there myself. Therefore, I want both of you to act as the Moore family’s representative. Just go and take a look at them and send our regards to them. After all, our families have always shared a close relationship.”
Reuben nodded before he suddenly said, “I remember now! I saw the video of that kid on social media. It seems as though the young boy who went insane and kept eating shit was a member of the Webb family?”
“Oh, cousin!” Jasmine said helplessly as she put her chopsticks down. “We are still having dinner! Why did you have to bring up something so disgusting?!”
Reuben laughed slightly before he said, “Oh, sorry. I’m sorry. It was a slip of mouth.”
Lord Mooore had also watched the video, and he suddenly felt very disgusted as well. Therefore, he put down his chopsticks before he said, “I heard that the young boy from the Webb family has already been hospitalized in the Castle Peak Psychiatric Hospital for the past two days. Just make a trip there and send your greetings to Donald. Tell him not to be offended and that your father is unable to visit him personally because he is not in Aurouss Hilll.”
“Okay, grandpa,” Reuben nodded quickly.
The Webb family from Sudbury was even stronger and more powerful compared to the Moore family. Even though the Moore family could rank in the top five families in the South Region, they could not make it to the top three.
These top-notch big families were all very close to one another. Generally speaking, whenever anyone visited someone else’s home court, the host would definitely do their best to entertain their guests to prove their sincerity.
